Couple accommodation

We have a number of twin rooms suitable for couples without children in Floyer House at our Whitechapel Campus.

Both applicants need to be full-time registered students of Queen Mary to be eligible for couple housing, but you do not have to be a married couple.

Please note couples cannot be considered to share a single occupancy room in Queen Mary halls or be considered for a family flat as these are restricted to couples with children, the only option is sharing a twin room.

If you are unsuccessful in your application for a twin room, you will need to seek housing in the private sector (please see alternative accommodation).

Alternative providers for couples:

There are several organisations providing comfortable, affordable, and secure accommodation for students in London:

Alternatively, you may prefer to search for accommodation in the private rented sector.

Housing Services offers a range of services to assist and support students who are looking for and living in private accommodation in London. If you intend to live with your partner, you should be clear with the landlord about who will be residing in the property with you.

A number of local authorities have placed restrictions on how many tenants can live in a property and you will frequently find that many landlords are unable to rent dual occupancy rooms within a houseshare. Therefore, you may wish to consider renting a studio or one bedroom property.

Please check the Private accommodation section for comprehensive information and resources to help you with your search.

Full-time students living in private rented accommodation are exempt from paying council tax. If your partner has a visa as your dependant they might also be exempt from paying council tax. Please check with Advice and Counselling for more detailed information on council tax and exemptions.
